Kim, paging Kim . . .

So, I went all weekend without blogging - that is pathetic! I tried desperately to paint. I had to because I don't know how much I can do this week - because my husband is gone - AGAIN - until Friday - 5 whole stinkin' days - me and my 1,2,3,4 kids - by myself!! I'm telling ya' the truth when I say, "it is an absolute miracle from God that all 4 of my kids got fed, bathed, teeth brushed {for those who have teeth} and tucked tight in bed tonight!" and I'm scared as H-E-double hockey sticks that I've got to do it again tomorrow night!

Folks Carson and Lawson made a meal out of 2 applesauce cups {each.} I had to give them 2 because they feed themselves and most of it ends up on them - Not in them! They also split a bowl of ravioli - but Laws is the only one who eats those - so technically Carson only ate applesauce! Uhmm - Hudson had white cheddar cheeze-its! For SUPPER!?! What kinda mother am I!! Desperate - that's what I am!! Desperate and pathetic . . . and you all now know. I beg of you - do not call DHS - I swear to feed them a healthy breakfast in the morning! All I can say is thank goodness that Em drinks her dinner 'cause it would have been likely she would have skipped a meal if it wasn't ready automatically! I can't believe I just admitted to you all what my kids ate for dinner! Please tell me that I'm not the only one out there that has done this! I'm feeling really guilty right now. But what the heck am I going to do about it now - wake them up and make them eat a real meal?? Heck no - it's 10:45 at night. I might be crazy, but I'm not dumb - I'll just live with the guilt.

This really is depressing {and stressing} - my super-hero strength is gone. I no longer can do it all. I think it might have to do with the fact that I'm 30 {=old} - I mean, maybe having 4 kids so little could possible add to the madness. But I really think the "old" is doing it - ohhh and the fact that my scale is broken. I couldn't possible weigh that MUCH! With 4 kids, running around the house chasing 3 of them while carrying the 4th one - - - that stuff should melt off my body! Melt off like butter!

Thanks for listening to my whining - I will come back tomorrow in a better mood - I promise!

I can't believe you have time to paint or blog with all of that going on! You are a miracle worker!

Do you have any friends with husbands out of town or working late? Maybe you could order pizza and have them over for a playdate? At least you would have someone to talk to while your kids are flinging applesauce!

Are you kidding you could feed your kids dirt and you would be a superhero to them and in the end isnt that the only opinion that matters, think about it. You are doing awesome!!!

Hang in there girl, for one, you are NOT old, for two, cheeze-its and applesauce is quite certainly a well-balanced meal! WHO CARES!! They got their mama and that is all that matters!!

Kim--go wake 'em up and make them some real food for Lord's sake! (kidding) what are you--NUTS???!!! I only have one toddler running around and he usually only eats grapes, scambled eggs or lunchables--now THAT is pathetic. Puh-leeze--you're a great mom, and I am SURE they know it!

and did YOU find time to eat dinner? I'm not going to sit here and pretend that it's easy...Mack normally eats raman noodles and Syd eats a bowl of cereal (not all the time, people!) and they are happy...so yes, rest assured their are other moms out there that do the same thing. I'm a "single" mom three to four days out of the week with Shawn's traveling...what do you do?? Hang in there!

1. You are SO not old! you are beautiful, fabulous and a GREAT mom. i have often thought about bringing you lunch and hanging out with our kidlets. i only have two small ones at home and i am not NEAR as together as you! i want you to come over here and get me organized and decorate my house,can you do that please?
2. You just gave BIRTH to a beautiful baby, and you need to treat yourself well. this means eating well (if you don't eat- you won't burn FAT!), getting REST- which i know is hard with little ones, but you can corral them and get some cat naps.
3. your hormones are all over and it takes time. take these melancholy moments with a grain of salt, and remind yourself they WILL pass.
miss you chickie, let's touch base soon.

Don't be so hard on yourself! Your children were fed dinner by a mother who loves them. I remember having 4 small children and I wanted to cry when my husband would leave town for days on end. I seriously wasn't sure if we would all be alive when he got home. Maybe he would find me curled up in the corner in the fetal position. But... we survived! I truly believe there was help from the other side because I could NOT have done it on my own. So just remember when you have nights like this... you're not alone. And your children WILL survive if they don't have balanced meals. ♥

You aren't the only one who feels mommy guilt. I know I do too. My husband works a lot too (but thankfully doesn't travel-poor you!) and it makes life tough!! Hang in there, you are doing a great job!!

I would feed my kids whatever they asked for if I thought I could get away with it.
